Summary "The Handbook of Psychology for Forensic Practitioners discusses some of the ways in which psychological research and methods can be applied by a wide variety of professional groups working with offenders. By aiming to give a fuller understanding of how psychology can contribute to our understanding of offending, the book concentrates on the assessment of risk in forensic settings and the interventions designed to reduce risk in violent and sexual offenders." "By illustrating theoretical practice with case examples and also practical guidance The Handbook of Psychology for Forensic Practitioners develops a very practical focus throughout the text. It can be used as an aid to day-to-day professional practice for those working in forensic settings including probation officers, social workers, nurses, psychologists and psychiatrists."--Jacket.
